Calling all Canadian Based Scrapbooking/Cardmaking/Stamping Related Stores, Boards, and Communities

To help raise awareness of Canadian based resources, there is now a new side bar feature specifically for Canadian based scrap related stores, boards, and communities that have an internet presence. This feature is like the sidebar feature listing personal bloggers. The sites are listed under the province where they are based.

In the past when a few of these sites submitted blog posts for carnivals they were included in the original bloggers side bar feature, but these are now moved to this new side bar feature. The original sidebar feature will be specifically for personal blogs.

If you have an internet site for your Canadian based scrapbooking/cardmaking/stamping related store, board, or community, you are invited to submit your site to be included in the listing, whether you have a blog or not. Simply send an email to . Be sure to include in the email the name you'd like in the side bar, the address to the site you'd like linked, and a short paragraph of information about your site. This paragraph must include what province the site is based in. Once your site is featured in an edition of the Carnival it will be added to the sidebar feature.

If you have a blog you are welcome to submit blog posts to any edition of the carnival. This is a great way to get word out about any news happening - such as new kits, contests, events, etc. - in your store, board, or community.

If you do not have a blog, encourage your members/customers that do have blogs to post about happenings and to submit their posts to the carnival.

Please help spread the word about this new feature to any Canadian based scrapbooking, cardmaking, stamping related stores, boards, or communities you know about.
